If you previously heard before any of Kleerup's hits ("Longing For Lullabies", "With Every Heartbeat", etc.) what would you expect if you heard about new Kleerup's project Me And My Army? I bet some dark melodic electro-music. At least that's what I expected and what a surprise it was listening to pure indie-pop without hint of overproduced electronic arrangement. Project has appeared last year releasing single "The Only One" and EP "Me And My Army" that marked mostly acoustic indie-sound and now they deliver new album "Thank God for Sending Demons" that goes in the same key of melodic pop-rock music. We thought and we do think that Kleerup is musician who can write very nice tunes but unfortunately not amazing singer and I guess that's what band has learnt from EP mixing now Kleerup's vocal with backing ones and invited singers that undoubtfully was a big improvement.
Today band presents video for Me And My Army's "The Only One" - nice half-acoustic track with nice instrumental, warm melodics and cozy melancholic atmosphere.
